I was on the phone with a friend of mine who is also in baseball. We were talking about some of the trades made today and knowing that my home base is Cincy he asked me a great question.
"Are the Reds opening up their wallet and spending their new TV Money"?
That seems to be the case. I have asked quite a few people recently what the estimated revenue number is of the new Fox Ohio deal. I have heard 10 million to 15 Million. Could that be? I am posing this more as a question than anything because Redszone is a marketplace of knowledge. (Even if you don't always like the answers) Does anyone have the info on what the Reds will be getting in the new deal?
If the number is 15 million and Castellini is willing to go another 5 Million then the Reds are in pretty darn good shape to shore up the pitching. 20 Million can get you 2 maybe 3 pretty good pitchers.
